NTE5608 thru NTE5610

TRIAC
8 Amp
Description:
The NTE5608 through NTE5610 series of TRIACs are high performance glass passivated PNPN
devices in a TO220 type package designed for general purpose applications where moderate gate
sensitivity is required.
Absolute Maximum Ratings: (TA = +25C unless otherwise specified)
Repetitive Peak OffState Voltage (TJ = 40 to +125C, RGK = 1k), VDRM
